Homeopathic medicine uses medicines made from the plant kingdom in a very special way. Through a specialized process called drug potentization, which consists of dilution and succession (shaking), inert properties within plants and herbs are released. These potentized remedies are rendered more capable of addressing some of our deepest medical and psychological problems. In potentized form, homeopathic medicines work on the principle of like cures like, ie they have the capacity to act as a tiny vaccine for the mental and physical symptoms they produce in crude dose. For example the coffee bean can make us wide awake and even jittery. In potentized form, Coffea cruda treats like: it calms the nervous and circulatory systems and treats insomnia.
The beauty of Homeopathic practice is in understanding the individuality of the patient. You will be introduced to the science of Homeopathy which lies in the ability of the prescriber to clearly perceive what is to be treated for each individual. As well you will be inspired in seeing the art in Homeopathy which lies in applying what is curative in Homeopathic medicine to your patients. Through a series of cases from fatigue to depression to anxiety and stress, you will see the effectiveness of homeopathy at work. The healing is not done by the Homeopathic medicine, but by stimulating the innate intelligence of the person’s body and mind. What results is a fantastic relationship between prescriber and patient who get to know each other well in this case taking process and an effective practice.
This course will include:
– “What is homeopathy?” – The basic history, philosophy, and seven principles of Homeopathy will be explained and illustrated with cases from clinical practice.
These seven principles include the law of similars, (how a remedy is selected, and how Homeopathy works) the principle of minimum dose, (why use minimum dose? how does it work in the body and mind), principles of individualization including totality of symptoms, the principle of vital force (how Homeopathy makes use of our spiritual vital force) , the principles of drug provings (how 4000 homeopathic drugs are tested on healthy people), recommended reference books to consult, potency and dosage selection, Law of Direction of Cure
– How this ancient system of medicine is applied to address many of the health problems of our modern age.
– How Homeopathy can be used in our everyday lives (e.g. minor first aid) including instruction about when to see a doctor or go to the hospital.

You can carry this tiny kit with you throughout your life to deal with emergencies such as shock, accidents, loss, sunburn, mosquito bites, burns, stings, bites, puncture wounds, food poisoning, seasickness.
